Padzieski Gallery Celebrates Comic Book Art & Cartoon History March 9 – April 7

Dearborn, MI – Green Brain Comicsthe Dearborn Community Arts Council, theDearborn Symphony Orchestra and Dearborn Public Schools are coming together for the first time to celebrate the history of cartoons and comic book art and even their connection to classical music. The free exhibition Comic Pages Thru The Ages opens at the Padzieski Art Gallery on March 9 with a reception at 6pm but the action packedClosing Night Party on Friday, April 7 will also include the Dearborn Symphony’s premier performance of Cartoons & Comics in Concert!

The exciting collaboration of these organizations offers an opportunity to break barriers while having fun blurring the lines between art that is popular and scholarly, entertaining and serious. The exhibition Comic Pages Thru The Ages (March 9 - April 7) has been thoroughly and lovingly curated by dedicated art collectors Richard Rubenfeld and Martin Hirchak with invaluable assistance from Dan Merritt of Green Brain Comics. Rare and unpublished comic book and cartoon artwork from the 1930’s to the present day will be shown highlighting some of the legendary artists who brought these pages to life for fans of all ages. The lobby outside of the Gallery will feature a wide array of comic style artwork by students representing Dearborn Public Schools.

Meanwhile, on Friday, April 9, as the Gallery’s Closing Party gets under way, the Dearborn Symphony’s Pops Conductor and pianist Rich Ridenour will lead the orchestra in action packed performances ranging from classical landmarks by Wagner and Rossini to popular cartoon favorites including “Powerhouse” by Raymond Scott and others. The Symphony’sCartoons & Comics in Concert! promises to thrill audiences not only with these musical gems but also with live action painting happening simultaneously on the stage of the Michael A. Guido Theater.
